The purpose of Betting is to equip the betting novice (or indeed add to the armoury of the established punter) with the kind of information that will hopefully help him (or her) navigate a path to that place in betting heaven. Although this is a resource provided by those nice people at Betfair, we value the independence of our users. We like them to make up their own minds about what is or isn’t good value. We could bombard users with facts like: at Betfair you can get upto 20% better odds (which is true!), or that Betfair allows you to bet on something right up until the finishing line or final whistle (which is also true!) - but we won’t do that. The only thing we ask is that you allow us to educate you in the way of decimal odds (actually far more sensible and easy to use than the more traditional fractional odds) and that you find what you read at the site useful. Feel free to leave comments in the blogs, whether you agree with what’s said or even if think our contributors are talking total claptrap. Happy Hunting!
